If there's one thing this cake has taught me it to read through a recipe before embarking on making said recipe. I just glanced through the recipe to see if I had all the ingredients and off I went! When it came to the sugar, I thought wow three cups? That's rather a lot, I've not heard of equal quantities of sugar and flour in a cake, so I just added two. No big deal. Towards the end I realise very luckily that this cake had no way of rising! No baking powder, no bicarbonate of sofa, nothing! It's at this stage that I realised what a ridiculous recipe this is. So I added three teaspoons of baking powder to the flour, one teaspoon for each cup of flour, and at this stage decided I might as well do my own thing all the way I add two teaspoons of coffee to a little hot water to dissolve, put that in with the eggs, sugar,and butter. I still used the cream but found the batter far too thick, so I added milk as well. I used icing with cream and omitted the butter as I find its not necessary. The cake was really good, but with no thanks really to this recipe

My family loved this cake!!!!! It was great without the glaze. Only the fine crumbs were left. I will definitely make this cake again.
